I think she had a very sad life. I hope she has peace now.
As a friend elsewhere noted, another "star" of "Celebrity Rehab" dies. Perhaps rehab shouldn't be a reality show.
Yes, this is sad news.
I had heard over time that she was trying to get peace and direction in her life.
The few times that I had met her and her manager/agent they were extremely nice.
Clemens for some reason felt the need to
But I suppose it is kind of problematic for him that five of his participants have died. It's probably better to ask whether the show overall helps or hurts these people.
It was not a great statement, but I agree with what Ray said.
Generally speaking, anyone claiming to address deep seated emotional and chemical dependency issues by broadcasting rehab to millions is a grifter and snake-oil salesman
If he indeed did have a personal relationship with McCready--and I don't know if he did, there seems to be a dispute about that--then this is a completely inadequate response.
She didn't want her dog to be alone. I know that sounds idiotic, but it's the only thing that makes any sense to me.
I don't blame Clemens for not admitting the sex--his statement at the time was about "mistakes"--
since 1) it ain't our business, 2) it's foolish to admit to what could be a felony depending upon the state and 3) it's extra-humiliating to his wife. "The few times," though seems totally out of line, though.
McCready, who was in New York on March 16-17 for an appearance on "The View," met Clemens in 1991 when she was a 15-year-old singing karoke in a Ft. Myers, Fla,. bar. At the time, Clemens was already a bonafide Red Sox ace and a married father of two boys. The two spent the night together after that first meeting, but McCready has said she and Clemens did not have sex until years later, when she was older.

Contacted by the Daily News Sunday through his lawyer Rusty Hardin, Clemens confirmed a long-term relationship but denied that it was of a sexual nature.
"He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her," Hardin said. "He's considered her a close family friend. ... He has never had a sexual relationship with her."
Hardin said the Rocket's wife, Debbie, knew McCready and that the singer had traveled on his plane.

The relationship with McCready paints a very different picture of Clemens than the one drawn by Jose Canseco in his book "Juiced," where he went out of his way to say that Clemens was one of very few professional ballplayers who was faithful to his wife.

"Now, I have been accused of having an improper relationship with a 15-year-old girl. Nothing could be further from the truth," Clemens said in the statement. "This relationship has been twisted and distorted far beyond reality."

For the record, this type of close relationship with a woman that doesn't turn sexual until years later (McCready's version) or even at all (Clemens's version) sounds fairly implausible to me.
